Good info though! Just delidded then.
They vary in their amount of concavity, but they are most all concave from what I understand. If you have one that is actually convex, I think that might be a different story.
I can confirm the H220 will work with a lapped IHS, so it is not like you can't buy it if you have already lapped it, but if you have not done so you are better off not. The product, like many coolers now, assume a slightly concave IHS so no point in lapping it if you haven't already.
